Religion is for people who are scared to go to hell. Spirituality is for people who have already been there.

This is the primary reason I posted "My Back Pages" the other night. The lyrics suddenly struck me as both religious and spiritual although there's no obvious reference to either. A lot of presuming and posturing can go with most any Dylan song, including this one, so it's probably best to keep my thoughts to myself.

The one thing I was struck by was the continual theme of personal growth and the notion that anywhere along the line you may be fooling yourself into thinking you're flush with wisdom. (and as a cautionary tale, you quickly find that greater wisdom resides in front of you rather than behind.)
